Knowledge Based Systems (KBS) are systems that use artificial intelligence techniques in the problem solving process. This text is designed to develop an appreciation of KBS and their architecture and to help users understand a broad variety of knowledge based techniques for decision support and planning. It assumes basic computer science skills and a math background that includes set theory, relations, elementary probability, and introductory concepts of artificial intelligence. Each of the 12… 

Introducing a method for modeling knowledge bases in expert systems using the example of large software development projects

A meta-model is developed, which provides the basis for developing highly scalable artificial intelligence systems that should be able to make autonomously decisions based on different dynamic and specific influences.

Towards a pattern language for knowledge processing systems: expert systems

A first approach via a pattern language for knowledge processing systems, consisting of five patterns covering the basic components needed, is presented and the applicability of the patterns is discussed by applying them on an example custom knowledge processing system project that shows how the pattern language supports the design and implementation.

Case-Based Reasoning Approach for Intelligent Tutoring Systems

This work discusses the knowledge engineering difficulties and challenges in designing the case-based ITSs, and suggests in this paper an approach to develop a case- based ITS.

A pattern collection for knowledge processing system architecture

The aim is to provide a pattern collection to allow also software designers and developers not familiar with knowledge processing principles, to easily design, implement and integrate such systems.

Survey of Temporal Knowledge Representation ( Second Exam )

The review will present various methods authors have used in applying logic-based KR, each methodology with respect to its formalism, and the reasoning in Description logic will be presented.

A novel research direction is proposed: Automated Knowledge Appreciation, that intents to establish a general systematic methodology and develop automated tools to expand the authors' knowledge and increase its value automatically.

Design of A Problem Resolution Knowledge based System for Computer Diagnosis, Repair and Maintenance

The research work focuses on knowledge based design and how to make it speed up computer diagnosis, repair and maintenance by making use of a centralized database as the backend where knowledge resides and designed HTML form as front end where users interact for knowledge acquisition and problem resolution.

Eliciting Knowledge Bases with Defeasible Reasoning: A Comparative Analysis with Machine Learning

The central findings of this thesis were that the knowledge based approach was better at predicting an objective performance measure, time, than machine learning, however, machine learning was better equiped to identify another object measure task membership.

  • 2018
This chapter is dedicated to a new knowledge representation model, providing convergence of classical operations research and modern knowledge engineering, and sets of multisets are described by the so-called multiset grammars (MGs), being projection of a conceptual background of well-known string-generating Grammars on the multis sets universum.



Representing Medical Knowledge in a Terminological Language is Difficult

An experiment to use a modern knowledge representation language, NIKL, to express the knowledge of a sophisticated medical reasoning program, ABEL, to put the development of more capable medical programs on firmer representational grounds.

CYC: Using Common Sense Knowledge to Overcome Brittleness and Knowledge Acquisition Bottlenecks

The major limitations in building large software have always been its brittleness when confronted by problems that were not foreseen by its builders, and its bottlenecks can be widened.

The author provides a coherent explication of probability as a language for reasoning with partial belief and offers a unifying perspective on other AI approaches to uncertainty, such as the Dempster-Shafer formalism, truth maintenance systems, and nonmonotonic logic.

On generality and problem solving: a case study using the DENDRAL program

The design of Heuristic DENDRAL and its performance on different problems are used for a discussion of the design for a general problem solver that is a variant of the "big switch" theory of generality.

Reasoning About State From Causation and Time in a Medical Domain

A mechanism for including the time constraints of causal relationships in the representation and the increased discriminatory power of the reasoning mechanisms when the time relationships are used appropriately are discussed.

Model-based troubleshooting of digital systems

This dissertation describes a methodology, a representation, and an implemented program for troubleshooting digital circuit boards at roughly the level of expertise one might expect in a human novice.

Applications of Artificial Intelligence for Organic Chemistry: The DENDRAL Project

In the terms of the paradigm of problem solving, abstraction can be achieved by defining a new set of problem-state descriptions, based on a language that is an abstrac34 APPLICATIONS of ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE for organic chemistry fororganic chemistry, in the sense that one problem- state description in the abstraction language corresponds to many problem-State descriptions in the basic language.

Formulation of tradeoffs in planning under uncertainty

SUDO-PLANNER formulates tradeoffs for an example medical decision problem by proving decisiontheoretically that certain plan classes are dominated based on a knowledge base of qualitative relations in the domain by establishing dominance relations among plan classes.
